I was just on a southwest 737ng in old colors and all the other southwest planes were in new colors. Is there a difference in how nice the planes are and would you rather be on a plane with new colors or old colors. Thanks

I would rather fly a plane that's in the airline's new colors, just because it looks newer and probably more modern. Like I've seen SW new colors and old colors, and flying the cool new one would be more fun and a new experience, I guess

I would prefer one in the new scheme because it is either a new plane, or recently had a full D check, and therefore has been fully inspected recently. I am not implying that the old ones are bad or unsafe, but I prefer a freshly maintained plane. Of course I wouldn't be phased either way if either one showed up at my gate.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

It really doesn't matter. Once you're inside the plane that's all you see. New colors outside doesn't mean new colors inside....and the other way around. In March I flew from PHX-MCI-PHX on Southwest... both planes were old colors... one new interior, one old interior....
